October 2nd, 2008: This seems kinda publicity-stunty, but Collins has come up with a list of words they're going to drop from their dictionary. Not the dictionary, their dictionary: we all know the dictionary is the OED. But in any case, a news story with a list of awesome words facing extinction (from the print edition) (of one dictionary I've never read) was STILL too much to pass up. I call "fubsy"! "Compossible" is also a great made-up sounding word that I hope to work into my speech from now on. I think doing this while still being understood is... compossible?
In any case, Collins said they'll be monitoring the media for use of these words, so check it out, Collins! I HOPE YOU READ WEBCOMICS?? – Ryan
December 1st-4th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe. December 5th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January. December 10th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL. December 14th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option. For FEDEX HOME/GROUND shipping it depends on where you are: refer to this map!
December 17th: A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (IF THINGS PLACED ON OR AFTER THIS DATE ARRIVE BY THE 24TH, THAT IS)
